Louisiana's First Lady Donates Book To School Libraries

BATON ROUGE (AP) — Louisiana first lady Supriya Jindal has written a book about the governor's mansion and is giving it to more than 300 school libraries around the state.

         The Supriya Jindal Foundation for Louisiana's Children is donating the book as an effort to promote children's literacy. In a statement, the first lady says she wrote "Louisiana Governor's Mansion: Our Treasured Home" with the help of her three children.

         Jindal's family will be moving out of the mansion next month. Her husband, Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal, is term-limited. Democrat John Bel Edwards takes office as governor on Jan. 11.
